Our practice has a long history of serving the Western Australian community since 1971. Our first two clinics were opened in Perth CBD and Claremont by Dr Lloyd Trotter and Dr Peter Heagney. Later, two more clinics have been opened in Floreat and Joondalup, thus making us one of the largest orthodontic practices in the Perth metropolitan area. Recently, we have started visiting South Hedland on a regular base.
Following Dr Trotter and Dr Heagney’s retirement, the practice has been taken over by Dr Richard Cook, Dr Peter Dillon, and Dr Greg Brudenell. Like their predecessor, these partners are highly dedicated to their profession and are actively involved in the training of the future orthodontists. With the retirement of Dr Peter Dillon and Dr Richard Cook, our practice has been joined by their former students Dr Phebe Sugiarto and Dr Gary Huang in 2009. In the beginning of 2019, Dr Richard Lee joined the practice.
Our Philosophy: Our team at BSH Orthodontics are dedicated to providing the highest standard of orthodontic care in a friendly and relaxed environment.
Dr Brudenell studied at the University of Western Australia for Bachelor of Dental Science and Master of Dental Science Degree. He graduated from the Bachelor of Dental Science Degree in 1976 with First Class Honours and became a Master of Dental Science in 1984.
Dr Brudenell chose to become an Orthodontist because he feels it is the most rewarding of all dental specialities. He says "aligning the teeth and correcting occlusions is probably one the most rewarding occupations I can imagine." In his spare time, Dr Brudenell enjoys golf and travelling the world.
